Nancy Page's Garden Bouquet 

 Garden Bouquet          

            by Nancy Page.  

      (aka Florence La Ganke Harris) 

  Patterns for Garden Bouquet was first presented in a weekly format in 1931 in newspapers across the country. The signature urn and bird appliques with a sampler of garden flowers was a hit with quiltmakers then and now.  I have always been attracted to this design and would like to share examples from quilt-makers of yesteryear and their interpretations of this botanical sampler quilt.

Garden Bouquet was even appliqu├ęd in silk onto a Crazy Quilt. 

 

 Enjoy the charm of this next group of Nancy Page Garden Bouquet blocks. Made during the years of the Great Depression, they express a whimsical spirit combining   the fabric scraps of thrifty time in fun and artistic designs.
